Alberta's Top Business Woman | Nominate them here

Alberta’s Top Business Women | Nominate here is looking for nominees as we celebrate Alberta’s top businesswomen in fashion and beauty, not for profits, retail, medicine, architecture, law, business, education, etc

Do you know any woman deserving recognition for business, politics, and life achievements? Do you know amazing women in your community that could use some recognition and appreciation?  They are everyday heroes.  Every woman is eligible as long as they are doing something amazing that inspires and empowers you. 

We are doing this to celebrate hard-working women who need a shine but are too busy to get the shine on themselves. In 2022, we would like to shine the spotlight on the top players in these industries. In our Spring edition, your nominees will be featured in our Spring Edition.

Deep Freeze | Extreme Weather Warning

In general, your risk of health effects like windburn and frostbite increase at wind chill values below -27.

Effective Today | Alberta Reduces Isolation Period to 5 Days

The Province -in line with other jurisdictions – is reducing the mandatory isolation period for fully vaccinated people who contract COVID-19 to five days from the current 10. This was announced by the Health Minister Jason Copping on Friday. Fully vaccinated people are required to wear a mask at all times when around others outside their home.

Isolation helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 by reducing the number of people you could infect if you have symptoms or test positive by staying home and avoiding others.

Effective January 3, Albertans are legally required to isolate as outlined below:

Fully vaccinated (2 doses or 1 dose Janssen): Isolate for 5 days from the start of symptoms or until they resolve, whichever is longer, if symptoms are not related to a pre-existing condition. For 5 days following isolation, wear a mask at all times when around others outside of home.

Winter break extended for K-12 students

The province will delay the return to school for kindergarten to Grade 12 students  until January 10 due to concerns surrounding the highly transmissible Omicron variant. 

The extended break will give school authorities time to gather additional data to assess staffing implications and the potential operational impacts of the current COVID-19 situation.

To assist with the safe return to classes, Alberta Health and Municipal Affairs’ PPE Task Force will also deliver 8.6 million rapid tests and 16.5 million masks to schools, starting the week of January 10.
